To be stable, strong and level, the floor above a crawl space requires solid mid-span support that's usually provided by a post-and-beam assembly. But beams are often undersized, and many contractors use wooden posts that can rot, shift and settle. When this happens, floor joists sag and other structural problems occur. The SmartJack system is a foundation repair product that provides a permanent solution to these problems.
In this basement we installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump; our most reliable Sump system, with 3 levels of protection. We also installed Waterguard to drain water to the sump pump. And to finish it off we install CleanSpace to give the walls a more attractive appearance.
This Stamford home had windows that were clearly insufficient. The windows could not let in any light because of the overgrown grass. Not only did the basement lack natural light, but it also let in a lot of moisture and air that made the area uncomfortable. The homeowner wanted a solution so he decided to call Connecticut Basement System.
The solution for this basement was to install EverLast windows paired with a SunHouse window well. The EverLast window has a durable vinyl frame that will not rust, rot, corrode, or need to be repainted. These windows will also prevent heat loss with its Low-E double-paned glass panes. Basement windows are usually located below ground just like this Stamford one. Dirt, debris, water, pests and even plants that take root in the well’s dirt floor and block the beautiful new EverLast window. A SunHouse window well was installed to prevent any disturbances and will also let in lots of sunlight into the basement with the well’s light color and curved form.
The difference is incredible and the homeowner was very happy with the results. Now, his basement is more comfortable and the area is brighter and more inviting!

Griffin H. is a loyal and longtime customer that first used Connecticut Basement Systems more than 20 years ago. When he purchased a second home this year, and found that his basement had a water problem, he knew exactly who to call.
The same week he spoke to Connecticut Basement Systems, Joe met with Griffin at his Stamford home. He recommended the Waterguard interior drainage system, along with a Trench Drain drainage channel, which would prevent the water from getting back into areas it doesn’t belong. When Marcio and his crew arrived at the house, they quickly and successfully installed the systems, along with an alarm to alert Griffin of any further issues. They further protected his property with the usage of a Lawnscape outlet in the backyard, which can be easily cleared by the homeowner.
A longtime customer like Griffin knows that when waterproofing a basement, a homeowner needs the expertise and permanent solutions that Connecticut Basement Systems provides to keep his home dry for many years to come!
After two major storms brought unwanted water into Al Y.’s basement, he was ready for a long term solution. Beyond just waterproofing, he was looking to turn the unfinished basement in his Stamford home into a usable space. He researched companies online and contacted Connecticut Basement Systems for an estimate.
Soon after, Mike arrived at his house and discussed his interest in transforming his basement into a family room. First though, Al needed to take care of the water issue once and for all. Sid Avis and his crew installed 60 feet of DryTrak, a SuperSump sump pump system, along with a WaterWatch alarm, and the IceGuard system as well. That way, water would stay out not only when it rained, but when it snowed as well.
With the basement now completely protected, Al is ready to begin the process to refinish his basement through Connecticut Basement Systems so that he can turn his formerly wet and unfinished basement into a room the entire family can enjoy.
When Tony M. found cracks in his basement walls, identifying that as the source of his water woes, he headed online to research companies that could help him. He came across Connecticut Basement Systems and sent an email explaining his issue. Waterproofing specialist Tarn Granucci visited him soon after and came up with a plan to keep the water out.
In just one day, Cisco and his crew used the FlexiSpan Foundation Wall Crack Repair System, and installed a TripleSafe sump pump. A few months later, Tony noticed another issue where water was coming up through the basement floor. He called Connecticut Basement Systems again, this time for a complete and permanent solution. A second sump pump, along with the WaterGuard interior drainage system and a LawnScape outlet in his yard, took care of the problem.
On top of waterproofing Tony’s basement, Connecticut Basement Systems also tested and sealed the entire area for radon. Tony’s basement is no longer a source of stress and is instead, a dry and safe space to be in.
